oh the joy. being a mama is hard work ;) and this little one has me wrapped around his little fingers. If I could describe this past month as a mom I would definitely say "overwhelmed" would best describe it. Overwhelmed with joy. lack of sleep. love. tears. hope. fear. grateful. adapting. etc. it's all running around me a mile a minute. but we are still alive. still thankful for being mom & dad & little one.
little r is one month now, how does the time both fly by and yet seem to go soooo sloooow?! hahaa :) So here we are, completing the cycle. exactly where we started in 2011 with our baby announcement and now look, a baby :P every now and then i catch myself in a reflection and for some reason i still expect to see my baby bump and then when i see its not there it feels SO weird. crazy how i pushed out a baby just a month ago. even though i had a HUGE fear of labor. even though i never ever wanted to go through labor. and even though it seemed impossible. its true. i'm a mama. i'm little r's mama. and we're a very blessed family. We ended 2011 on such a high note. i'm hoping 2012 gets better. Already making plans to take little r to his first baseball game, road trip, beach outing, picnic, etc. good times ahead.
now if i could only get some actual Inspire Lovely work done...but SOMEONE seems to never want to give mama a break. hint * hint* well with that little face, my heart melts... and then a big party of kisses & squishy hugs ensues. this is how we roll... :)
taking it day by day
